Michigan defensive end Mario Ojemudia injured his Achilles earlier this season against Maryland, and the star defensive lineman was holding out for a medical hardship waiver in hopes of gaining a fifth year of eligibility. Apparently that waiver was denied.

From Ojemudia’s Instagram:

It’s always a great day to be a Michigan Wolverine, but unfortunately for me those days have officially come to an end. Though things didn’t work out how I wanted them I know God has a plan, and the first step of that plan is getting healthy to play at the next level.

Ojemudia had 19 total tackles in five games this season, which includes 6.0 tackles for loss and 2.0 sacks. The senior must now rehab and prepare to enter the NFL.
